Spring Beauty Favorites!

Affiliate Link Press Samples

It has been awhile since I have posted a favorites post! There are just so many products that I am loving for Spring right now that I just had to share!!! This month I am all about products that help me get ready quickly, lip products for both color and moisture, and fabulously gentle anti-aging skincare products. 

We are in the midst of trying to sell our house. So, I find that I am always trying to get ready super quick. I need to be ready to get myself, the baby, and the dog out of the door at a moments notice, lol...stress! Also, since I am no longer nursing my baby, I can finally dive into some great retinol-based anti-aging products. The great news? I have found some that produce fabulous results with no negative side effects! Yay!!! Lips? Bring on the color!!! I am all-about looking natural and putting the pop-of-color no my lips. It is actually much quicker to do a simple eye and bold lips. Plus, I just love the lip shades this Spring! So fresh and pretty!

Here are some of my Spring Favorites:

1. Pixi's Flawless & Poreless: This amazing primer from Pixi keeps my skin looking matte and smooth while also keeping my skin hydrated while keeping oily breakthrough at bay. I think that they key is in the ingredients. It has both salicylic acid as well as willow bark to unblock your pores and control shine. Other key ingredients include: Shea Butter, Titanium Dioxide, and Enantia Chlorantha (medicinal & anti-viral). I love the non-greasy feel, too! Retails for $29.

2. Aveeno's Pure Renewal Dry Shampoo: Ya'll know I love dry shampoos, right? Well, I am using them now more than ever! I am really trying to go a solid 3 days without washing my hair. I would not be able to accomplish that without dry shampoo. This one by Aveeno is great! It has a super fresh scent that I really like. It boosts volume and helps make your hair smell great and seem more clean. Retails for about $7.50.

3. Kate Somerville's Dermal Quench Liquid Lift: I absolutely flippin adore this stuff!!! I won't go into a full review as you can read it here: Dermal Quench Liquid Lift. A spray of this on your skin instantly erases fine lines!!! The plumping power really is amazing. I use it like a toner. I spray it on after cleansing and then just lightly massage it into my skin. It plumps, hydrates, smooths, and lifts. Love, love, love it!!! Retails for about $95 for 2.5 oz.

4. IT Cosmetics Vitality Lip Flush: I know, I can't stop mentioning this product! These Lip Flushes have quickly become my favorite lip color. They hydrate and tint your lips while giving you a glossy shine. They are just so quick and easy to wear and are so comfortable on the lips. They are my total fuss-free lip color! These lip flushes are what I like for everyday wear.

5. The Tangle Teaser: OMG! Where has this Tangle Teaser been all my life? This detangling "brush" has revolutionized my combing-out experience! I have the worlds most tangled hair. For real! My hair is super long and thick. Top it off with some damage from over-processed highlights and you have a tangled mess every time I wash my hair. Plus, my hair creates "dread" type tangles underneath my hair throughout the day. This tangle brush/comb works those tangles out absolutely pain-free. Plus, it gives a wonderful "massage" to your scalp. I can't even explain how great this Tangle Teaser is! I actually one to purchase another to keep in my handbag/diaper bag for on-the-go. If you struggle with tangles, you NEED this! You can find the Tangle Teaser at Sally's Beauty Supply for about $12.99.

6. Paula's Choice Resist Anti-Aging Foundation: I just adore this foundation! I won't go into too many details as I fully reviewed it here: Paula's Choice Resist Foundation. The Porcelain shade is the perfect match for me. It smooths out your skin and gives great coverage. I love the texture and finish! It retails for about $25

7. Shiseido's Perfect Rouge Lipstick: I absolutely adore this shade "Secret"!!! It is the perfect peach! The formula is creamy and hydrating as well as packed with pigment. I adore wearing this shade! So perfect for Spring!!!

8. The Body Shop's Strawberry Eau de Toilette: The Body Shop's Strawberry scent is one of my faves! I love that you can now get this scent in an Eau de Toilette spray!!! The light and sweet fruity scent is just fun and easy to wear. Very fresh and yummy! Plus, it is only about $14 for a little bottle.

9. Make's Blush in Geisha: I really am loving Make cosmetics lately! Their products are so pigmented!!! This pretty peachy pink blush is so pretty to wear (it coordinates so nicely with my fav Shiseido lippie mentioned above).

10. Neutrogena's Moisture Smooth Color Sticks: Am I into lippies this month or what? I have three of these Neutrogena Moisture Smooth Color Sticks and I love em all. They are so easy to wear! I always have one of these in my purse/diaper bag. Check out my full review here: Neutrogena Moisture Smooth Color Sticks.

11. Shiseido's Bio-Performance Eye Cream: Wow! This Vitamin A-based eye cream is impressive! I love it when an eye cream is super-effective while also being totally gentle and soothing. This ultra rich eye cream has smoothed out my eye area very nicely. My eye area is very hydrated and dark circles seem diminished. You get immediate results with this as well as long-term anti-aging results. I find this cream to be a bit heavy. So, I only use it at night. I adore the sleek pump packaging, too! It retails for $60. If you are looking for a new eye cream, you should totally check this one out. I adore it!!!

12. Le Metier de Beaute's Dark Spot Corrector: This is one of the most gentle retinols that I have ever used! I experience absolutely no irritation with this product! Plus, you also get dark spot fighting ingredients, too. It is super expensive but it is soooooo good! Check out my full review here: Le Metier de Beaute's Dark Spot Corrector.

So, those are my favorites for Spring!!! :) What are you loving for Spring??? I would love to hear!!!
